The major in Italian language, literature, and culture, which leads to a B.A. degree, provides students with a mastery of the language and a broad knowledge of Italian literature and culture. Lower-division courses teach the skills needed to read, write, and speak Italian. After the second year, students are trained to develop an oral and written command of the language. Literature and film studies cover areas of studies from Dante and the Renaissance to modern and contemporary periods. Our interdisciplinary approach is grounded in the history of Italy and its culture from the Middle Ages through the Renaissance to the present. All students with more than one year of high-school Italian are required to take a placement examination, given immediately before registration each semester. This requirement applies to all students regardless of class standing or previous study. Prospective majors should consult the Italian program coordinator as early as possible. Early consultation is particularly important for students with little or no preparation in Italian so they may be sure to satisfy prerequisites and requirements within four years.
